MADE KING A HERO
A British View of the "Citizen

When the nightmare has passed and
men look back with seat at
i the days when et bell there la
Bril lafa exchange, I
that will stand out eonepicaoua even
atiiid the universal horror. It is the i
ruin of Belgium. There is no parallel
in history to the fate that has befallen
that unhappy country There is no
riiiiie in history comparable with that
crime Peace will eome again, punish?
ment will be exacted and the oblivion1
of time will heal many wounds, but
neither peace nor time nor penalty will
wipe ou? the stain of Belgium from
the soul of Germany. That is indelible;
that can never be forgotten and never
' be forgiven. It condemns Germany to i
eternal obloquy and places Cue Kaiser
among the great criminals of the hu?
There is, however, only one figure
who has touched the imagination of
the world by the qualities of humanity
and heroism. The King of the Belgians
i..?, won the hearts of men as few kings
or subii rts ever win it, and whatever
the result of the war he will be the
symbol of Its human and ehivalrie as
just as the Kaiser will l?e the
i of its barbar ties and ambl
! tions. If Europe effect.? Itl 'U lucrante
from the peril that overahadowi us it
'will owe the fact primarily t?. the Uti
' parallel* d sacrifice of Belgian and the
heroic inspiration of Belgium's King.
None of thoae who have reaerves about
' kingship need have any hesitation in
| th<ir confession, for King Al
I bert i- i K:n>.' after our own heart^
? the civil h. , ?pie.
Not long a;-?, tl.e name of the King
of the Belgians was a name of evil Ini?
port. Leopold II, in his vices, ambi
? tions and magnificence, played the
role of the Grand Monarque on a tiny
Etage He belonged to the traditions
of Francois I, Henry VIII and Louis
XIV, and had he been cait for a
bigger part in sovereignty his master?
ful, aggreaalve and conscienceless
i?i have plunged Europe in
trouble. Ilia passion for splendor was
largely at the root of the infamy of
his rule in the tongo. Men were tor?
tured in the rubber forests of the
, Congo that he might ape magnificence
| and build great palaces of empire at
I home, and his contempt for the poor
I was as flagrant as his domestic tyr
; anny and his private scandals. At
] his death M Vandervrldt pronounced
on him one of the most terrible ver?
dict ever passed upon a king. "We
; have tried," he said, "to find ir, this
; long reign of forty-four yean one act
i of goodness, of mercy, of charity.
Alas! we ran find nothing."
There was never a more striking
? change in personality than that
! achieved when his nephew, Albert, the
i ion of the Count of Flanders, came to
! the throne. Like his ur.cl*. King Al?
bert is a man of great ?tature and a
' masterful will, but there the likenesa
! ends So far from playing the grand
j monarch, he is the best type of the
i citizen king that Europe ha* yet pro
I duced M. Wa_wei!er, the economist
I of the Solway Institute at Brussels,
I who was King Albert's tutor and who
?7-. ?till privileged with his clos
friendship, gave me long ago a plear
ant picture of the plain and homel
life, und the even social intei'
this remarkable man. I'omp and cu
cumstunee are entirely alien to hi
democratic spirit. He :
the flummeries of courts to their low
est expression, and moves among hi
people with an easy, unpretentiou
inendline -, qualified by a modest
that amount? almOBl to bashfulnes?.
When he and his Queen come to En|
land, for which he ha? a deep at?ectio7
they come as plain citizens, put up a
u hotel, visit the theatre, go BOOB
ping, and vanish without the WOrli
neing any the wiser. His uncle's pa?
sion was the greatness of hi-,
eignty; King Albert's p .ssion is th.
happiness of his people and the goo.
name of his country. To these hi
whole life ha? been devoted witl
extraordinary etnglttacBI <>f aim. H?
went ip the Congo to see the trutl
about the Leopold ternie lor himself
and his accession was coincident witl
the wiping out of that blot from th,
record of his country. He know-, th?
greatness of a country is expressed no
in palaces hut in the lives of its people
and as Crown Prince he sot himself t<
kan. what '.ho," live aere like. H?
worked m the mines, he drove engine:
on the railways, he mixed with th?
Work ? in all their activities
And the constant theme in his speech?-:
in the Senate and cleewherc WS
wellbeing of the working populatior
el the country.
But if the condition of the poor wai
to be raised, something else was neces
ary beeide? sympathy and knowledge
Th?t something was the prosperity ol
industry and commerce. Now, there war
one defect in the equipment of hif
country which as a bound economist
chiefly disturbed him. Belgium had a
great overseas trade and was the sec?
ond port in Europe, but its merchan?
dise eras carried in foreign bottoms,
chiefly British und German. He saw
that this was not merely a source of
commercial weakness, but also of po?
litical menace That menace came from
Germany. Subtly, stealthily, that coun?
try was aoiuirmg a pr?dominant in?
fluence in tne life of Antwerp. Ger?
mans were capturing the Chamber of
Commerce, the marine insurance busi
r.es?, the control of the banks, the pos?
session of the navigation compar.i
the freighting trade, ot shrphroking, of
everything. Antwerp was becoming a
city in which the people were Belgians,
bu* 'he mast-era were Oermuns.
To change all this the Crown Prince
set himself to emulate the example of
Peter the Oreat, though with a nobler
purpose. The establishment of a mer?
cantile marine for his country became
the dominant purpose of his life, and
to accomplish it he assumed the die
guise of a newspaper reporter and vis?
ited the principal ports and shipyards
of Europe to carry out his investiga?
tion?. It wa? thus that he went to Bel?
's-.' ?n l!>m<. And since his accession
he has pursued his purpose with less
privacy for he can no longer pass
himself off a? a reporter bat not les?.
enthusiasm, a? the visit to the United
It is not wi-e, perhaps, at this
to probe too closely the ?e. ?.
last tragic days at Antwerp, hut when
those secrets are revealed the apirit of
this man will shine out with a radiance
that will glow ,n the page? of history
for ever and ever. He and his people
have won an immortality that, will be a
precious inheritance and an enduring
inspiration for humanity They have
given u? a new faith tn our kind. They
have shown us that in the mv.t peace-1
ful and bourgeois people the passion o
patriotism can still flame into gres
deeds, that the soul of man is m
than all the engines of Kiupps, the

Among the ma ilal one ol
the Ka:.-er there was nono more fatal
than Ins contempt for thi? simple, un?
'i King and his litt!?
people. He thought that, willing 01
une, illing, he could take them in h il

the defence of Antwerp. It muy h.'
i true. I do not think it is, for the act
dee? not .. ?i the wholly un
theatrical spirit of the man. He would
not tire the last shot for show, but he
would assuredly die the last death for
honor. And whatever the cause of the
war, whatever the fate of Kurope, it il
In him that the future will see the

HUNTING BY NIGHT
IS NOW POSSIBLE
Shooting Searchlight, a New
German Contrivance, Is a
Boon to Sportsmen.
Endeavors have be?n made repeat?
edly, but hitherto without any very
? -v r< alta, to design a
source of artificial light, enabling
shooters to Indulge In their sport even
by night. Practically every sports?
man has on his shooting grounds some
game or vermin which he la unable
to get hold of by day, as it is too sly
i to leave the woods so long as there
. danger of its being shot. At?
tempts to prov. ? ihligbt ar?
rangement for hunting purposes have.
: .re, been watched by sportsmen
with unusual In te real Apart from
being easy to handle and safe In oper
luch an outfit must be of suf
intensity to insure
really sportsmanlike shooting.
A firm of German i onstructors, af?
ter comprehensive and costly experi?
ments, has IBCOQOdod In de-igxing p
really convenient shooting searchlight?
This Is readily mounte.l on any rifle
and allows the back and front stghta
or ,l ?? sighting telescope to be u?e?l
in shooting, as the case may be. The
right projects a bright cone of
light on 'he gr..un.|, up to a diatance
of 70 metre?, or IM feet, and enables
one to take aim at 'he game in safety
while it is blinded by the light
In usiner the new searchlight, as
soon as the approach of th.- gam? la
heard or faintly seen the rifle is cau?
tiously pointed In the proper direc
. and the searchlight switched on.
Should the game not be the 01
pected the source of light n immedi?
ately ?switched out again, lest other
game be frightened. In fact, the appa?
ratus will only prove fully useful in
the hands of skilled sportsmen; when
Ml ? ' may even do more
harm than good In the case of peats,
such as rabbits, it may, however, be
switched on regularly every ten min
r so The apparatus will render
especially valuable service in big gam?
??hooting, la the extreme dark of tropi?
cal nighte, where the dazzling effects
are especially striking, so that aira
may be taken in perfect safety Again,
I ?? is ? '.'. prove most valuable
la connection with game protection,
poachers struck by its light being
dazzled and made unable to defend
themselves, whereas the ranger shel?
tered by the darkness of night may
handle his rifle in safety.
The main advantages of the appa?
ratus may be summed up as follows:
The battery and lamp are combined
with the optical system hi the same
steel tube; the light is switched in
readily without any special manipula
1 tions, and the weight of the outfit is
so low as no? to inconvenience the
I shooter id. any way. Bcieati?e Amen?
